happened to me and what is happening now not primarily motivated by religion. it was motivated by politics. there were people thought they had something to gain by engendering this violence that goes with it, and in other respects, it is my view, but the response is rather similar, and what it shows is that people in the islamic world, political leaders and politically motivated religious leaders have become very good at manufacturing this response. tavis: you think this is completely manufactured? none of it is a buildup of offensive that those persons in that part of the world have taken year after year after year on the part of the u.s., wittingly or unwittingly? >> there is some part of that, american foreign policy, some resentment of the various foreign wars that are being waged, iraq, for example, the dropo killings, all of that kind of stuff, but i think the anger comes from more profound sources been bet. these are people usually in places where the young men, almost all of them really have no prospects. no jobs. they have very little chance of making a good living for themselves,

to build the alternative solution and it's not easy because you have different religions, different histories, you have the people who were outside -- >> what if there's a stalemate and the killing continues and continues and continues. >> first it means that the rules of the security council-- when you have two countries, great yis, russia and china-- saying no, and the fact that there is a continuous killing the public tensions, you, everybody says no, it doesn't make sense. i was saying this afternoon to the security council. we are the security council of the united nations. we are not the wall counsel of not united nations. we have to fulfill our roam to implement a role but today we do not. but if this massacre continues, i think, first, it will have terrible effects on the region, and maybe-- well, our principle, as i was saying, is to comply with the international legal rules. the time comes where the human pressure is too strong, and maybe the time is coming. >> rose: in other words, there may be a time you have to act even though you cannot get security council approval. >

not include freedom to insult religions. the u.s. army will stage a one- day stand down from normal duties tomorrow to focus on suicide prevention. through july, there had been 116 suicides among active-duty soldiers. that's up substantially from last year. the stand-down will not involve other branches of the military, and it will not apply to soldiers involved in combat operations or medical duties. nearly one in five u.s. households are now carrying college student debt and that's a record high. the pew research center reported today that the figure reached 19% in 2010-- twice what it was back in 1989. pew said the burden is greatest among the poorest families, and the average debt for all households is more than $26,000. >> woodruff: president obama and governor mitt romney were slugging it out again today on the campaign trail, both of them in the battleground state of ohio. and both of them mindful of the need to turn out younger voters, who went overwhelmingly for mr. obama in 2008, but who are proving more elusive this year. i traveled to the columbus area this past weekend ahead o

200 years, that in order to preserve freedom and liberty, including the freedom of religion, you have to allow people to say and do things that you find abhor ant. and you can't react every time you are insulted. i means that's the first thing we all have to teach our children. and i don't mean to compare the people rioting against news cairo and anywhere else to children, that's not the point. the point is if you live in a shame-based society where you think nothing good is going to happen, the temptation is to wait for somebody to say something you find offensive and you can lash out against it. but free people, mandela, absorb destructive things and refuse to be destroyed. there's a child here, i mean not a child, a young woman, i don't know if you have seen here. the disabled chinese lady, you have seen her, right. >> rose: yes. >> i went to her village, i was in her home, in 1998 as president. its with a great honor, right, not for her. her parents were required to take her upstairs and hide her, leave her on the bed upstairs because they live in a culture that thought there was
